Maserati Kyalami
Named after the Kyalami Grand Prix circuit in South Africa where a Maserati-engined Cooper won a race, the Maserati Kyalami was more De Tomaso than Maserati. At the 1972 Turin Show De Tomaso launched their 2-door Longchamp coupe styled by Tom Tjaarda for Ghia and powered by a 5.8litre Ford V8. Sales of the Longchamp were slow, and when in 1975 Maserati was acquired by De Tomaso, the Longchamp was given to Pietro Frua to transform into the Kyalami and a 4183cc Maserati engine (later 4.9litre) was slotted into it. It was a better car than the Longchamp, but sold only half the 409 De Tomaso cars and was withdrawn in 1983.
